Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

Excellent service and very professional staff!! I have been going to Lauren (dental hygienist) for years and she is very thorough and attentive. It is very obvious she enjoys helping her patients. Dr. Wells is top notch and very detailed. The front desk / management is very friendly and to be honest the entire staff is easy on the eyes! I will definitely be back!

I was recommended this dentist by a co-worker and am so glad for the referral! Dr. Wells and his staff are always friendly and appointments start on-time! I recently finished Invisalign with a different dentist and my bite was never discussed. However, my first visit with Dr. Wells, he asked about my treatment and immediately suggested some options to improve my bite to prevent my teeth from moving further in the future. We also took our 1 year old for his first visit and Sandra, our hygienist, was so good with him – he was smiling the entire time!

First new Dentist since I was a baby. We moved to Charlotte two years ago, I went to my Dentist just before moving here. I felt like I wanted to fly home twice a year just for my dental appointments, but of course that wasn’t feasible. At my new job my co-worker recommended Dr Wells, so glad I followed her advice, I didn’t feel nervous, I had two teeth that my previous Dentist had been watching, so I had one worked on. Easy peasy! My husband has now gone to Dr Wells and he is just as happy, well as happy as you can be when you have to see the dentist

The minute you enter the office, you feel a warmth and genuine concern for your dental needs. The staff is kind, thorough and take time to answer ‘every question.” It’s clean, and that is a major plus. Enter, Dr. Well’s…..I was greeted with a hand shake and a smile that boast a set of great white teeth….. 🙂 My entire visit was relaxing, I knew this professional was “sincere” about what would be best to give me a “lovely smile.” He asked me more then once if I was “alright.” How could I not be, he is very gentle. I realize dental work can be costly, but I have to say, that Dr. Well’s is reasonable. I needed a dentist in Charlotte, I am glad I found this one.. Thank you Doctor, to you and your staff!

I am using Dr.Wells services for more than 20 years. They are true professionals and I am very satisfied with the service they provide. I really like their arrangements post COVID-19 re-opening. It was reassuring to see the safety features incorporated right from receiving to completion of service. will recommend to any one

I have been going to this practice for 10 years. Dr Wells and his staff are extremely professional and very proactive. They are very thorough with their exams and very gentle when doing cleaning and filling cavities. What I love is the ability to have a crown completely done in one visit. They have in-house technology that allows them to make your permanent crown at the office so no temporary, no coming back for another appointment, it’s great. I highly recommend this practice to everyone.

I have been going to South Charlotte Family &Cosmetic Dentistry for 13 years!  Once I went the first time I knew I was never going anywhere else.  They are warm, friendly, positive, and always willing to go the extra mile.  Dr. Wells is an awesome dentist.  Until I went here I had a fear of dentist offices but that has all changed since I have been going here. They genuinely know how to take care of you and see that you get the best of care!

I have been going to South Charlotte Family and Cosmetic Dentistry for about two years now. The staff is tremendous….from the receptionists, to the dental staff….all wonderful. I was amazed to see another review with negative customer service as this office has nothing but the best in customer service. Top Notch!

Dr. Wells and his staff are a phenomenal team, delivering customized care to each individual while maintaining a relaxed, friendly & comforting environment. For someone who has had bad experiences with dental care in the past, this is definitely the office to go to! Every time I leave Dr. Well’s office, I am very satisfied with the care & attention I’ve received. They’re the Best!

I found South Charlotte Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in an online search. I really needed a cleaning. It had been a year. I moved and had not tried to find a new dentist. I started to have pain in my gums, so I knew I needed to schedule. They had a great deal going on for new patients. On top of that, I added the cleaning. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Wells and his staff for any dentistry needs! Although, it’s a 25-30 minute drive for me, I will continue to go here. Everyone was very accommodating and sincerely cared. Kim scheduled me for the first available slot (2 weeks out) and kept up with me when anything opened. She was able to get me in just a few days after my initial call. I hate (and I mean hate) going to the doctors office. However, I cannot provide enough positive adjectives to describe Dr. Wells, his staff and my visit. Accommodating, Friendly, Knowledgeable, Genuine staff and fairly priced services!

5 years as a patient and I will continue to be a patient of South Charlotte Family & Cosmetic Dentistry.  Dr. Wells has put together a top notch staff who are always pleasant, professional and caring.  I like the fact that I can go in for a cleaning over my lunch hour and still have time to grab a bite.  They’re tremendous!  Well done!

I have been taking my kids to see Dr. Wells for the last 15 years. He is amazing with all five of my kids, who are now becoming adults. He has handled their oral care with professionalism as well as caring and sensitivity. I left three different pediatric dentist who didn’t know the beginning of how to talk to children, until I found Dr. Wells. I won’t see anyone else and I certainly won’t take my kids anywhere else either. He is the best!

Mimi M. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Broke my denture and immediately phoned the office. Kim couldn’t of been any nicer. She had me come in immediately. Dropped the denture off in the morning and by 1:00 received them beautifully repaired. How nice is that? Dr. Wells is a kind and compassionate person who will do his best to make his patient happy and comfortable.

Chuck M. from Indian Trail, NC (Source: Yelp)


My wife and I have implicitly trusted the competence and the genuine concern of Dr. Wells and his the professional staff for more than 15 years and will continue to be a patron. He has state-of-the art equipment to maintain the dental health of his patients under any circumstance. I would recommend them to everyone. Chuck M.

My family of five has been going to South Charlotte Family and Cosmetic Dentistry for 20 years. For most of that time, I felt Jim’s work was worth going out of network for. He now accepts​ Delta Dential​ which is like getting a bonus. The hardest part of dentistry is color matching a front tooth crown, believe me, Jim is really good at this. (The one day crowns help take some stress out of that procedure). Notable too is the speed at which Jim works, not too fast to make you think he is rushing but rather speed through precision and experience.​ ​In summary, Jim is an outstanding dentist who does just the work that you need, utilizes the latest technology and is backed-up by very cohesive, razor sharp team of hygienists and assistants, my favorites are Christina and Lauren.

I booked an appointment as a new patient and was seen within a week. The service was excellent – Sandra my dental hygienist was super friendly and very thorough, and Dr Wells was likewise caring and took the time to properly discuss different treatments and possibilities for the future. All of the office staff had a great attitude. Impressive!

After visiting multiple dentists in the S. Charlotte area, a close friend referred me to Dr. Wells. From the beginning, he and his staff were clearly the dental staff I had been looking for. From routine cleanings, to more advanced orthodontic work, I’ve entrusted Dr. Wells and his team and I could not be more satisfied. Not only are they quality dental professionals, they are (more importantly) quality people!!

R. F. from Indian Land, SC (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr. Wells for at least five years and have been very satisfied with the work he and his technicians do.  He is gentle and takes the time to get to know your situation and makes very common sense recommendations.  I highly recommend him and his team.  They are also conveniently located beside a pediatric dental practice that is also really great!

Tiffney F. from Charlotte, NC (Source: Yelp)


I am a former dental hygienist with over 20 years of experience, so when I can review a dental office 5 stars, that is saying something! My only treatment needs have been standard 6 month cleanings and the usually scheduled x-rays (BW’s and Pano), but the staff is always welcoming, professional and prompt. It is important to me that an office is clean and up-to-date on the latest procedures and products and Dr. Wells and his staff are on top of it. I have been a patient for almost 3 years and my parents just move to Charlotte and I have recommended Dr. Wells to them.

Adam B. from Charlotte, NC (Source: Yelp)


I have been coming to this office for 4 years now and the staff is top notch and attentive. My hygienist Lauren does an excellent job and is very thorough. Lauren is very professional and personable always giving me her recommendations and treatment plans. Dr. Wells and Lauren both always take their time and provide the attention needed. I encourage anyone who is looking for a dental office to give the office a try and you will be very satisfied.

I had an excellent experience at South Charlotte Family Dentistry. The staff was very friendly and personable, did not make an issue of the fact that I missed my appt. by seven hours, and took an interest in my teeth and my life. Sarah was great, as were Dr. Wells and others. I was appropriately warned for my laxness and given time to straighten up and fly right. I mean, who wants to go to the dentist, but by the end of the visit I felt like hanging around a bit longer..
